Will Ousmane Dembele leave or stay at Barcelona?



Will Ousmane Dembele leave or stay at Barcelona? 56



While working on fresh terms for teenage sensation Gavi, Barcelona are also hoping to agree a deal with Ousmane Dembele that will prevent him from dropping into a free agent pool this summer.

The Liga giants will not, however, be breaking the bank for the World Cup-winning forward, with El Chiringuito claiming that the Blaugrana will not offer the Frenchman more than €8million-a-year (£7m/$9m).

Ousmane Dembele is on his way to Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

AS reports that the winger is close to moving to the French club and may even have already signed a contract.

Barcelona advisor Jordi Cruyff admits Ousmane Dembele’s contract situation – with the French forward still heading towards free agency in the summer – is complicated.

He has told Sport: “The situation in respect to the renovation of Dembele is not easy. I believe that what is most important is that he continues helping the team and the rest will come.

“He has had a good game, like many players that are out of contact and search for a better contract. He continues helping the team to achieve the best objectives and aside from that, we cannot control.”

Ousmane Dembele is yet to sign a new contract at Barcelona, but COPE claims he is now open to the idea of doing so.

The World Cup-winning France international forward will hit free agency this summer if no fresh terms are agreed, but he is ready to hold more extension talks and may end yet end up remaining at Camp Nou.
